The Native Forest Story

Learn about the story of our Native Forest® brand and the environmental efforts you support when purchasing our products. The Native Forest® Project can be found in the Amazon River basin of Peru in South America, where conscientious entrepreneurs work hand-in-hand with ecologists to create a system for harvesting and processing Native Forest Organic Hearts of Palm.

The Native Forest® Project

The Native Forest® Organic Hearts of Palm project supports the health of the consumer, the future of the rainforest and the economic and social well being of the source communities. The project brings employment and a higher standard of living to the region while maintaining respect for its culture and its vast natural resources. Healthy, delicious and convenient, Native Forest® Organic Hearts of Palm are cherished members of the Native Forest family of products, which we are proud to offer you.

America's First Canned Organic Hearts of Palm

The Native Forest® brand was born in 1999 with the introduction of America’s first canned Organic Hearts of Palm. The harvesting system of Native Forest® Organic Hearts of Palm supports preservation of native South American rain forests while benefiting source Amerindian communities.

America's First Canned Organic Coconut Milk

Native Forest® Organic Coconut Milk (America’s first) is pressed from the nutmeat of mature organic coconuts. It features full-bodied coconut taste with a smooth and creamy texture. Organic coconuts tend to be a little smaller than their conventionally grown cousins, while the organic coconut trees are sturdier and more drought resistant.

Tropical Specialties

Our Native Forest® collection has grown since 1999, with additions of juicy organic fruits, authentic tropical specialties and culinary quality fruits and vegetables. These are packed in cans or glass jars for convenient storage and long life without need of refrigeration (until opened) or preservatives

USDA Organic

Our organic fruits are tree-ripened in certified organic orchards, then packed in organic juice at the peak of flavor. We support proliferation of organic agriculture wherever possible, and we are proud of the dedication of our certified organic growers and packers whose efforts allow us to offer you a range of succulent organic tropical fruits.
